Attracting students into Technology Teacher Education programs
MetadataShow full item record
The future of the Technology Education profession depends not only how attractive the syllabus is to students in schools but also on the viability of the Technology teacher education programs that provide future graduates. This paper will provide a brief overview of Technology teacher education in Australia as a context for a discussion of the elements of exemplary Technology teacher education programs and the manner in which these differ from other disciplines. Factors in the literature that encourage student participation in teacher education are then identified. These factors are discussed in the context of the results of a longitudinal study undertaken at Griffith University.
